With a view of its varied architectural styles - and demonstrating that there is no such thing as a quiet Sunday!

probably there is some kind of a Sunday market nearby? and the weather seems to be good to be outdoors, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Nope - but most of the shops are open on Sundays now, so it's just like any other day.
Magnifiques maisons qui doivent attirer les touristes.
Tom Wilson: They certainly are!
Nice view Tom...Not nowadays !
Tom Wilson: Attractive places get killed by tourists.
Nice shot, Tom - the people do add to it!
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Elizabeth

What an excellent street shot, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Ray
It makes me wonder what they're all looking at, Tom. "Never Train Alone?"
Tom Wilson: Yes, I can't recall what it was - I suspect a street performer of some kind - pavement artist, perhaps.

No quiet Sundays any more. I remember walking into Bath with hardly a soul around.
Tom Wilson: Days of rest! No longer!

Only early mornings on a Sunday might be quiet, Tom. "Everybody" might be in church....
I remember Chester as a very nice town.
Tom Wilson: Earlier in the day it was a little quieter, Astrid - but there is very little church going these days - about 1% of population attending Church of England and 1.4% attending Catholic Church
Chester is never quiet. In some ways it would be good to go back to shops being closed on a Sunday but it isn't going to happen
Tom Wilson: Yes, unfortunately not.
This tiem of the eyar I doubt there are many quiet Sundays anywhere.
Tom Wilson: You are right there, Brian.

It looks beautiful and busy; the latter because of the other. The feet will always be welcomed, with those having something to sell.
Tom Wilson: That's certainly true, Louis.

Haha- surely hordes of tourists? Are the shops open on Sunday? I recall this street in Chester after looking up from the town walls.
Tom Wilson: I think many are just locals, with some from just a few miles away, but certainly some tourists. And, yes, most of the shops are open.
Nice old buildings, Tom.......I don't recall visiting before smile
Tom Wilson: Worth a visit Martin
Not for me. Toooo many people.
